Comment: This will really set the bar high... (Score 0, Redundant) 564

This product seems exciting for three reasons:

- Unique user interface (no styluses or thumb keyboards)

- Mobile computing that fits in your pocket

- WiFi and mobile networks enabled

Now, the rest of the industry will respond with cloned technology and drive the $499 entry point price down to what we all can afford. How can it be more perfect?

Walt Mossberg Reviews the iPhone 564

WSJdpatton writes "Walt Mossberg tested the iPhone for two weeks, in multiple usage scenarios, in cities across the US. His verdict is that, despite some flaws and feature omissions, the iPhone is on balance a beautiful and breakthrough hand-held computer. Its software especially sets a new bar for the smart-phone industry, and its clever finger-touch interface, which dispenses with a stylus and most buttons, works well, though the lack of physical buttons can be a hindrance." Digital Daily has a roundup of early iPhone reviews.
